The South Dakota Supreme Court has upheld the 2007 conviction of an inmate convicted of murdering his wife in Pierre in February 2006.

Brad Reay says his trial lawyer should have called forensic experts to bolster his claim that his adolescent daughter committed the murder.

But the high court says Reay's lawyer used solid strategy.
